Group membership caching so that this is no longer a requirement. The first and second points also need to be considered in light of the number of users and workstations at the sites. If there are enough workstations at the site to generate logon traffic that will utilize a large percentage of the available WAN bandwidth, then you will probably be forced to place a local domain controller at the site. How many domain controllers to have Deciding how many DCs to place at a site is.

Configured as a domain controller. One example might be if some changes were made on a particular domain controller that you wanted to take back. If you were able to disconnect the domain controller from the network in time before it replicated, you could perform a non-authoritative restore to get it back to a known state before the changes were made. This would effectively nullify the changes as long as they didn’t replicate to another server. * * * Warning You cannot restore “null”.

WinNT:, LDAP:) to tell ADSI which directory to access, you use different OLE DB providers to tell ADO which query syntax to use. An OLE DB provider implements OLE DB interfaces so that different applications can use the same uniform process to access data. The ADSI OLE DB connector supports two forms of syntax: the SQL dialect and the LDAP dialect. Although you can use the SQL dialect to query the ADSI namespace, most scriptwriters use the LDAP dialect because Active Directory is an LDAP.

You must specify two pieces of information: the OID of the syntax and a so-called OM syntax. This pair of values must be set together and correctly correlate with Table 4-3. More than one syntax has the same OID, which may seem strange; and to uniquely distinguish between different syntaxes, you thus need a second identifier. This is the result of Microsoft requiring some syntaxes that X.500 did not provide. Table 4-3 shows the 21 expanded syntaxes, including the name of the syntax with alternate.
